Story Behind the Song

The prayer of St Patrick is an enduring legacy of this "saint of old", and still moves hearts and spirits with its passion and honesty. The song was written walking through the streets of Dublin.


Christ before me
Christ above me
Christ beneath me
Christ beside
Christ my vision
Christ my wisdom
Christ my comfort
Christ my guide

I bind unto myself this day
The strong and holy name
Praise to the mighty God of my salvation
Three in one and one in three
I bind unto myself the strong name
Of the holy Trinity
